C                               F         C
What is it about you, makes me feel this way?
C                     Am
When I'm leaving you, when I'm coming home
    F                G
I'm lost for words to say.
       C
And I know your faults and failures,
          F                         C
And the troubles that you've been through.
          Bb             Dm
But it's more about what happens now
    Dm7             G
And what were coming to.


          C            F
And the echo from the green hills
         C                F
Runs through her city streets,
         Dm                F
And the sun that shines on England
         G                C
Well it lifts the heart in me.
C   F       C   F      C F Am Dm G
England, oh England
C   F       C   F    Dm F G C
England, oh England


C                          F            C
What is it about you, that took men into war?
C                       Am
Rows and rows of crosses: Who remembers why what for? 
F                       G
The corners of these foreign fields,
C
The dust in them concealed.
F                          C
Out of sight but not out of mind,
Dm7                     G
Don't you know that England feels?

C                   F
And the echo from the green hills
         C                F
Runs through her city streets,
Dm              F
The rain that falls on England
G               C
Well it washes care from me.

C   F       C   F      C F Am Dm G
England, oh England
C   F       C   F    Dm F G C
England, oh England

C                       F               C
Don't make this out a battle hymn or a song of victory.
C                       Am
It's just a way to try to say what England means to me.
F                       G
And our accents and our colours change
C
From the city to the farmland
F                       C
From the moor-land to the mountain,
Dm              G
From the river to the sea.


C               F
And the echo from the green hills
         C                F
Runs through her city streets,
Dm              F
The rain that falls on England
G               C
Well it washes care from me.

C   F       C   F      C F Am Dm G
England, oh England
C   F       C   F    Dm F G C
England, oh England


C               F               C
From the rolling road to the winding lane,
C               Am
From the field to factory,
F               G
From summer's haze to winter's glaze,
C
And all the colours in between.
F               C
It's a stillness in the evening.
Bb              Dm
It's the heartbeat that I'm feeling.
Dm7             G
From Cornwall to Northumberland,
F               C
From the Pennines to the sea.


C               F
And the echo from the green hills
         C                F
Runs through her city streets,
Dm              F
The rain that falls on England
G               C
Well it washes care from me.

C   F       C   F      C F Am Dm G
England, oh England
C   F       C   F    Dm F G C
England, oh England
